When easter rolls around it can be hard to stick to the healthy eating regime you’ve worked so hard to put in place and resist the temptation of eating a Cadbury egg or 6. With so many healthy treat making innovations around these days it’s making it a lot easier to curb those sweet cravings the healthy way.
These fudgy choc bites are the perfect Easter treat that won’t have you feeling like you’re missing out this Easter but without the guilt. Plus, they’re so sweet and delicious the kids will have no idea they’re actually healthy! Helping to tone down those sugar-crazed afternoons I usually experience when the kids have had too many chocolate eggs.
I add in an all-natural protein powder to my recipe to help keep me satisfied for longer and know that i’m getting my daily protein hit but it’s totally optional and can be skipped if you don’t wish to add it. This recipe is very flexible and you can add in pretty much anything you like. I often like to add in some Goji Berries for a little added sweetness and chew or even some cashews or peanuts for some crunch.
The raw cacao powder in it is rich in magnesium helping with muscle recovery and sleep and the maca powder is excellent for hormones whilst adding a slight caramel twist.
